FBOs are a (much) better way to achieve what you want: they are cross
platform and supported well.  They accelerate well; I have a vague
recollection that in ancient times one would get SW rendering in some
drivers for pixmaps.

Even intel cards support FBOs; I imagine they're pretty universal these


All that said, I'm sure sane patches fixing glX pixmap issues would be
